, but it seems they've already got their first target in mind. it's iowa congressman steve king. in the words of a top aide to mr. rove, quote, we're concerned about steve king's todd akin problem. all of the things he said are going to be hung around his neck. karen, aside from the fact that mr. king refers to undocumented immigrants as lazy dogs, suggested hillary clinton's state department has ties to the muslim brother 450dhood, and that he doesn't know where the president was born, might targeting mr. king actually help mr. king in some way? >> it could, although here is what i think it does broadly for the republican party. it does mean whoever the ultimate nominee, republican nominee in that race is, has to figure out a way to bring all those voters back together to get enough vote to then run against a democratic opponent who won't have been so ideally beaten up during a primary. remember, it was this sort of republican on republican violence during the primary that gave us, you know, vul titure capitalism that was used in the general election. >> it was also one of the finest clown s
to strip citizens of guns in the run-up to the second world war. here's steve mclaughlin yesterday frustrated with how quickly the gun control bill was passed. >> we're told to shut up and vote. that's what this is about. don't question it. just vote. that's the message here. hitler would be proud. mussolini would be proud of what we did here. but that's not democracy. >> there you have it. a few hours later he released a video apology calling his statement an honest mistake. >>> finally, republicans refusing to attend president obama's state of the union address georgia congressman paul broun for example typically stays in his office hooked to his twitter account. where will steve pierce be during the address? his announcement yesterday, public hearing on the chicken is the same day of the state of the union. pearce will be attending a meeting on a chicken to the endangered species list. >>> and their top staffers would rather forget. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. ♪ >>> welcome back to "hardball." we may have just seen president obama inaugurated a second t
the company to unlock his $137 billion on cash on hand to pay off dividends. steve sedgwick is live for us in london. steve, what exactly did david einhorn, who is he suing, what's going on here? >> basically, the point is apple wants to change its charter and ban a type of shares which would give a very high yield to investors. they want to preserve their cash pile, $137 billion, part of $500 billion plus held by the top 20 u.s. corporate. they want to hang on to the money, most of which is held offshore, which in brought back onshore into the united states could trigger hefty tax bills. apple wants to hang on to the money to use in other ways going forward. a lot of activist shareholders and hedge funds want a higher yield on their stock, especially considering the fact that stocks like apple are now trading as low as $468 a share. it's a very anxiety battle for the company and investors. >> steve, the merger talks, american airlines and us airways, where's it stand now? what's the implications for passengers? >> yeah, looks like this one's going ahead. it will create the largest domesti
with gop congressman steve pierce. he has decided to skip the state of the union. what's the reason? this guy. the lesser prairie chicken of new mexico. that's right. congressman pierce is going to the birds. literally. he tweeted that he's staying home in new mexico because "a public hearing on the chicken is the same day as the state of the union. no disrespect to the chicken, even if he is the lesser chicken. congressman, it's time for all of us to come together as a union. as americans. and showing up at the state of the union speech is one way to show it. we're facing some serious economic time. we're facing serious decisions on gun legislation. we're facing serious questions about how we sustain social security, medicaid and medicare. i know your party didn't do well last year, but, congressman, don't be chicken. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> war on drones, let's play "hardball." >> good evening, just a day before the president's chief counter terrorism advisor, john brennan heads to capital hill for his hearing to take over the c.i. ave
" grilling. when we saw steve sitting down with hillary clinton and barack obama last night things were so much lovy dovey it almost sounded like a theraauerapy ses >> i consider hillary a strong friend. >> very warm, close. i think there's a sense of understanding that, you know, sometimes doesn't even take words. >> so, are the media going, dare i say it, soft on hillary? joining us now tererance smith, dana milbank and amy holmes. seems like the media, whether you think hillary clinton did a good job or not so good of job as secretary of state or almost walking on water. >> bit of a love fest, wasn't it? not surprising, i suppose. she has done a good job and she got credit for that. towards the end of the week it seemed to me you saw more critical coverage of her four years, what she achieved, what she didn't achieve. how power and foreign policy, anyway is still in the white house and not -- >> a point made by the "new york times" this morning. particularly in the tv interviews, did you see any cabinet member getting that kind of treatment? >> certainly not. but do remember that the me
to ask hard questions. cbs correspondent steve kroft reacted to the critics. >> i've been doing had these interviews with him since a few weeks before he declared his candidacy. so i covered him through the campaign and kept doing it in the white house, but i think it's a question of fairness. we have not -- i think we're not going to play gotcha and we're going to make him look stupid. we'll let him answer the questions. >> jon: that sound might be mike wallace rolling over in his grave. >> croft, candidate obama knows he can come and answer the questions. but the puff ball question, there are plenty have questions you can ask that are hard but ron fornay summed it up. it was like clinton and obama like a old happy married couple. they wonder if he will do that with vice president biden. >> here is what they wrote this week. it was something would you expect from the state run media. it was that kind of level of propaganda. 60 minutes was apparently being used as a campaign advertisement when there are problems all over the world. judy, was this a squandered opportunity? >> i think
on immigration to business leaders, including ceos like steve case and monica lozano from his now disbanded jobs council and chief executives of coca-cola and yahoo!. he also meets with labor and progressive leaders. the meetings will focus on how immigration reform fits into his broader economic agenda. >>> homeland security secretary janet napolitano on monday brought that message to border security operations near san diego. >> our immigration system has been broken for far too long. time to fix it has come. time is of the essence. i believe the border is secure. i believe the border is a safe border. that's not to say that everything is 100%. >> today napolitano will visit the border in el paso, texas. the white house from the white house is immigration reform. yesterday the subject was guns with police officers behind him. the president called on congress to act. but then seemed to lower expectations for what will count in his head as a win. >> we don't have to agree on everything to agree it's time to do something. it's really important for us to engage with folks who don't agree with us o
's got big, bad you in his sights. so the fight has begun. while steve king, matt kibbe, joe walsh, rush limbaugh, all the inhabitants of the cuckoo nest are scrambling because karl rove is drawing lines in the sand. want republicans to win? cut out the crazies? want the democrats, stop giving them easy targets, rape candidates and witches. stop making the democrats look smart and reasonable by running stupid and crazy candidates. the joy is, i have to say this, and it's really quite funny, each of the right wing factions thinks that they are the sane ones, they are the ones who have to protect the party from the others. well, tonight the duel to the death drives deeper. it's do or die, fight to the death. the winners get to run against hillary clinton. the losers get to say it's not their fault they lost. wait a minute. that doesn't make any sense. and neither does this fight on the right for the right to say you're right. with me tonight are two msnbc political analysts, joy reid of the grio and david corn from "mother jones." joy, it really is a joy to watch this, to watch rove runnin
rove's opposition to steve king's iowa senate bid has been the best thing that ever happened to mr. king. are we witnessing the final days of the reign of king karl over the republican party? >> well, i think we may be. the fact that his super pac in the last election in 2012 had a 1.29% return on investment has not made donors very happy. >> oh, come on. he only spend $300 million. >> i know. it's chump change really. i don't know what they're so upset about. but the other thing here for the candidates for candidates like steve king, and really for any candidate, show me the piece of mail or the television advertisement that says i am the choice of the establishment, that's why you should back me. and essentially that is what karl rove's impractice mature at this point means. yeah, especially in the republican party, especially where there's this huge anti-establishment tea party wing, being the choice of the establishment, having that branded on you is not going to be a good thing. and the converse of that for steve king, if you are not the choice of the establishment, you can ra
much for the great work that you guys are doing each and every day. and to steve israel who worked tirelessly to bring on 49 new outstanding members of this caucus, i am -- i am looking forward to spending time with all 49 of you, and hopefully we'll be seeing you over at the white house at various events, but obviously i know that you came here to get something done. i am looking forward to working with you every single day to make sure we're doing right by the people who sent us here. now, i actually just changed the format here. i called an audible. originally the way this was scheduled is i was just going to talk, and then i was going to shake some hands, and i thought since this is not a shy bunch, it might make sense for me to take some questions and some add vishgs i'm sure, you guys have for me. so what i'm going to do is make some points at the top, and then what i would like is maybe javier or steve or somebody can come up here and you can call on folks and we'll spend a little time with q and a before i get a chance to say hello to everybody. and part of the reason i wan
're not going to run. that means so far only two democrats, congressman ed marky and steve lynch have said they're going to make a bid for kerry's seat in the special election. >>> despite a grueling confirmation hearing, the chances of chuck hagel becoming secretary of defense are greater than 24 hours ago because john mccain and three other colleagues of his indicated they would oppose the use of a filibuster to try to block the nomination, rejecting an idea floated over the weekend by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell and others. move by mccain and others now suggest hagel is going to have enough support to be confirm. the nomination is expected to go to the full senate floor this thursday. >>> last night in the book touring supreme court justice sonia sotomayor made a rare television appearance. she was on the colbert report. she talked about her childhood in the bronx, faith in the constitution, but she got a little bit coy when stephen tried to draw her into specifics. >> not all of us believe in the constitution. the second amendment is never to be questioned. do you believe that we
's a guy who thinks president obama only opposed the soviet constitution. over in iowa, steve king isn't ruling out a run. he's currently pushing a bill to stop what he calls anchor babies. but what can i say about this next possible candidate for new jersey? >> there can be a new vitalization of the republican party concept where we extolled the vir which yous of the good business and fiscal policy. >> i'll be here every friday until such time as it's no longer legal. >> geraldo rivera leading the gop comeback? i don't think so. joining me now is e.j. e.j., thavnnks for coming on tonight. >> good to be with you, reverend. >> first, what do you make of scott brown's decision? >> i think it's a good decision for him. and i think democrats are very gleeful. if they dance jigs, i think harry reid is dancing one. he was the one candidate who could win that seat. he was running even or slightly ahead of markey. and while i think he was not as strong as he was going to be, he was when he first won. if the mood got a little bit bad on president obama, he could have won it again. he's smart to
steve king on immigration? >> i think that was meant to be a compliment toward immigrants. up next, the latest republican scheme to rig the election. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there are several states where republicans floated the idea of how electoral votes are dif i haved up. republicans controlled the state legislatures. well, the scheme seem today have crashed before they even began in most of those states. in florida, for example, top republicans have backed away. in virginia, the bill was killed in committee. in ohio, the republican governor indicated it was opposed in wisconsin where paul ryan said he was against the change. that leaves one state for now, pae pa. and republicans seem sbent intent on going ahead. dominic says he will introduce legislation this month that will change how electoral votes are awarded, changing it from a winner take all to a popular vote. that would be instead of 12. it's going against them. well, this latest scheme succeeded. jim burnen is the chairman of the democratic party of pennsylva
of representatives. congressman steve king had a hearing today in the house. >> we have about what, 6.3 billion people on the planet. so that would be a universe that you addressed, i think. but do you believe that there should be a limit to the number of people brought into the united states? >> i do think that the answer is to increase the number of high-skilled immigrants that we have. but also to put the folks who are already here -- >> but mayor castro, what i'm hearing here is that you wouldn't put a limit on any of those groups, you would just fill up the categories essentially by demand. and that demand is potentially the entire population of the planet. >> what do you say to someone who worries about the entire planet coming to the 50 states, as a result of immigration reform? >> i think if he is worried about the entire planet he should support climate change efforts. but that said, this is really about -- this shows today's judiciary hearing in the house shows how out of touch some of our elected officials are in the house, and unfortunately, i think in the senate, as well. and reall

show the leading republican congressman steve king gets beat by any likely democrat. this a surprise? what do you think? >> it's a surprise in terms of iowa, having done some work there, it's a rural state. it's not the northeast of the united states. it's not massachusetts. but they're also very progressive, and they're also a good judge of character. they kind of see through the game, if you will. and i think the state has changed over the last four or so years. it's kind of moved if you will more to the center, more to the center left. and candidates like congressman king and others just don't i think reflect the values of the preferences of the state. >> now, on the national level, there is new jersey governor chris christie. let's take a look at his appearance on david letterman. >> i've made jokes about you, not just one owere to. not just ongoing here and there, intermittent. >> i didn't know it was going to be this long. >> joking aside, christie has an innate ability to know the room and be the regular guy. and isn't this what the republican party is lacking right now? i mea
